• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

No the BC245XLT cannot be modified to light cigarettes only its big brother the BCL245xlt can.

:D Try Radio Shack. They chould have the lighter plug that you can fit the adaptaplug onto. Otherwise there are a few models that you can pick up at places like walmart that have a four way tip system and a slide switch for voltage. I don't trust those with my scaners personally but that's your call.

Thanks for the information, but in looking at the Uniden Website, I do not see the BC245XLT listed with any of the power cords. I had checked Scannerworld prior to posting, I saw that they had one, but it didn't listed as being for this type of scanner.

If you'll go to the BC245XLT page on Unden's website, then look at the accessory listings on the right hand side of the page, you'll see the same power adapter I provided the link for above. When you actually click on the adapter itself, the page displayed does not list the multiple scanners it will work with.

Okay, thanks. I ordered one today. I tried to search on the Uniden website by type of scanner to view the accessories and wasn't getting that for some reason. Thanks again.

Well, When I Checked The Uniden Site Last Thurs Am, They Had Them Advertised For $12.99 +

Might Yours Not Fit The Radios That Mine's Has?

Hence The Price Difference?

What Diff Duz It Make I Guess, They Have Been A PITA To Get No Matter What
